These are results from compilations by Markus Shoepflin on VisualAge version 5.
For a long time, he has not updated them anymore so let's ask him (he's in CC)

I think the traffic-light colors should suffice. I find adding black confusing.
Ideally the color green should only be used if the sources have not changed in the mean time
so in general the colors depend on the amount of change between the sourced use for the test
in respect to the sources in the CVS. But I can imagine that that's not possible or .... ?
